Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Northwest Airlines full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Went to some pretty good international locations. Most pilots and Flight Attendants were great to work with and hotels were decent for the most part.

Cons

Cut-throat management. Drove the company into bankruptcy and hired scab mechanics. Always maintained an adversarial relationship.

    Pros

    Good benefits and a well run operation.

    Cons

    Large corporate structure that was not able to make change quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize the talent of all airline employees involved in the merger. Be respectful of the proud history of Northwest Airlines; don't try and erradicate the Red Tail employees.
